Last seen in Ireland when he was artist in residence at the Dún Laoghaire Festival of World Cultures in 2004, Nitin Sawhney releases his eighth studio album in October.

London Undersound features Sawhney collaborating with Natty, Reena Bhardwaj, Ojos de Brujo, Anoushka Shankar, Imogen Heap, Faheem Mazhar and Paul McCartney, with artwork by Antony Gormley.

Sawhney says the album is his attempt to capture the London he knows.

“London’s heartbeat has changed”, he says. “Within that heartbeat there lies a feeling, a collective consciousness, the uniting hum of disparate voices waiting to be heard.”

London Undersound is released on October 10.
